Entry #1, Quit Day #8

Sign in to follow this  


I've "quit" thousands of times over the last 18 years or so. I've had 2 quits since finding this site. The first lasted around 28 days, the second less than that. Not a great track record. So I'll blog my way through this time as another tool at my disposal to stay quit.


Strangely, Day 8 (today) is worse than Day 1. I remember this phenomenon last time: I don't want a dip so much as I just want to be able to concentrate and feel normal. If eatinq squash (I don't like squash much) would do the trick, I would do it. Problem is, I know dip is the only thing that will make me feel "normal", which is not actually NORMAL. Learning to live with a new normal is, I think, what has tripped me up in the past. I was surprise at day 21 or so how "not normal" I still felt. So I caved.


This time I am determined to accept whatever quitting throws at me in the way of feeling "off". As I write this on Day 8 I stil feel nauseous and off center. "Quitter's Flu" is in full effect. What a drag....
